Watch your Tivo from any place with a broadband connection
Watch your Tivo from any PC/Mac within your home (faster than 1st option)
Use your Tivo just like you would from within your home
Only one person can connect at a time
Whatever the person is watching at the physical location.... you would have to watch on the slingbox. Unless you were to change the channel on them.
Picture quality is not as good as being there but it's usually acceptable
So, the slingbox won't really replace a Tivo but it will allow you to control one (gotta get the Slinbox AV or HD to do that though).

so....what can I expect to lose or gain from buying a Slingbox Media Pro (about $200 on ebay)....
Do tey connect to the home network and allow streaming from a pc? thanks!
